Not excited about any of the new changes, and don’t see the need for them. Most of them I’m neutral about, with a few strongly negative, and nothing stands out as a major positive change. I don’t mind religious beliefs getting tweaked, but I didn’t see any major concerns about where they were before. I strongly disapprove of the unit changes. Archers going to range 1 is terrible. Swordsmen are already quite strong, and don’t need a buff. I’m not convinced about the new tribute system. It could turn out to be an improvement, but it looks rather more complicated than the old one, which is a red flag for me. I’d much rather be simplifying things and getting rid of unneeded mechanics than adding more complexity. All in all, I’m really dubious about these changes. I love VP, but there seem to be a lot of change for change’s sake recently.
